  • Publication number: 20200292236
    Abstract: One embodiment is directed to an apparatus comprising a firing furnace comprising a heating chamber configured to fire a metallization layer of photovoltaic devices and a cooling chamber configured to cool the photovoltaic devices that have been heated by the heating chamber. The cooling chamber comprises lights to light anneal the photovoltaic devices to reduce light induced degradation as the photovoltaic devices are cooled in the cooling chamber. The cooling chamber of the firing furnace is configured to use residual heat from heating performed in the heating chamber of the firing furnace as heat for the light annealing of the photovoltaic devices. Light annealing is not performed in the heating chamber of the firing furnace.

  • Patent number: 10753039
    Abstract: A method of forming an active agent infused linear material includes passing a substantially linear polymeric substrate through a linear substrate infusion chamber in a first direction, flowing a liquid infusion solution through the linear substrate infusion chamber in a second direction, and contacting the linear substrate with the liquid infusion solution at an infusion temperature and for an infusion time effective to infuse the one or more active molecules into or onto a surface of the linear substrate, thereby forming an active agent infused linear material. The liquid infusion solution includes one or more active molecules. The second direction is substantially opposite or substantially parallel to the first direction. A linear substrate infusion system and a polymeric linear substrate are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10750738
    Abstract: Methods and systems of maintaining, evaluating, and providing therapy to a lung ex vivo. The methods and systems involve positioning the lung in an ex vivo perfusion circuit; circulating a perfusion fluid through the lung, the fluid entering the lung through a pulmonary artery interface and leaving the lung through a left atrial interface; and ventilating the lung by flowing a ventilation gas through a tracheal interface. Maintaining the lung for extended periods involves causing the lung to rebreath a captive volume of air, and reaching an equilibrium state between the perfusion fluid and the ventilation gas. Evaluating the gas exchange capability of the lung involves deoxygenating the perfusion fluid and measuring a time taken to reoxygenate the perfusion fluid by ventilating the lung with an oxygenation gas.

  • Patent number: 10751740
    Abstract: A pump assembly for a pump assembly for a dispenser container comprises a cap having a housing and a spout and a collar having a stop member. A sleeve is at least partially positioned within the collar and comprises a sleeve chamber. A plurality of resilient members are housed within the sleeve chamber. Compression of the cap causes compression of the plurality of resilient members and engagement of the cap with the stop member of the collar. The cap, the collar, the sleeve, the at least one valve, and the plurality of resilient members are comprised of a same type of recyclable material.

  • Publication number: 20200264520
    Abstract: In a lithographic process, product units such as semiconductor wafers are subjected to lithographic patterning operations and chemical and physical processing operations. Alignment data or other measurements are made at stages during the performance of the process to obtain object data representing positional deviation or other parameters measured at points spatially distributed across each unit. This object data is used to obtain diagnostic information by performing a multivariate analysis to decompose a set of vectors representing the units in the multidimensional space into one or more component vectors. Diagnostic information about the industrial process is extracted using the component vectors. The performance of the industrial process for subsequent product units can be controlled based on the extracted diagnostic information.

  • Publication number: 20200263382
    Abstract: This invention related to a coupler for securing an attachment to an earth working machine. The coupler comprises a coupler body that presents a receptacle having a capture region. A pin of an attachment can move into and out of the capture region. A retainer can capture the pin in the capture region but the retainer can be moved by a hydraulically driven driver to a position to allow release the pin from the capture region. A trigger that the pin will strike when the pin moves into or out of the capture region, decouples the driver from the retainer and the retainer is then allowed to be biased back to its retaining position by a spring.
